35 Panoptic

22T4 Nagler (w/DioptRx)

ES92 17mm*

14 Delos

13 Ethos (w/DioptRx)

8 Delos

6 Delos

4.5 Delos

3.5 Delos

Baader Hyperion Zoom w/ BHZ 2.25x barlow*

 

... grin.gif  Okay, so it seems like I didn't even try but I really did and I could only get it down to 10. 

 

*I may seem like a TeleVue junkie (and I am) but the two most used eyepieces the last couple of years were the Baader Hyperion Zoom w/ BHZ 2.25x barlow (for the march of the planets across the sky last year) and the ES92 17mm (for its unparalleled immersiveness for eyeglass wearers).

I only own 3 eyepieces (no one forced me to, but I like having a "minimalistic" approach yo my astro-hobby. Not so much to my astro-job...)

 

1) Nagler 22T4

2) Nagler 11T6 (it is being substituted by a XW 10 that is on the way)

3) Tak TOE 4mm (it literally arrived this morning, it is substituting a 4mm Delite)

I've already reached my minimalist eyepiece zen.

24 mm Pan (pair)

16 mm ES 68 (pair)

10 mm Delos (pair)

10 mm APM UFF (pair)

Mod 3 C (not a pair, I'm not that rich).

If it was just 5 I'd go for these, which I already have:

 

31mm Nagler

21mm Ethos

13mm Ethos

8mm Ethos

6mm Ethos

 

Of those, I don't use the 31mm Nagler that much so I guess I could make do with just the 4 Ethos's.

 

I like that lineup! I would only tweak it slightly for my choices.

 

 
21mm Ethos

17mm Ethos

13mm Ethos
8mm Ethos
6mm Ethos

 

 

The 21E vignettes in my "Forever" C102. The 17E would give me the maximum FOV for that scope.
